  • Ivy Secure Environment

    Ivy Ivy is a secure computing environment for researchers consisting of virtual machines (Linux and Windows) and Domino Data Lab. Researchers can use Ivy to process and store sensitive data with the confidence that the environment is secure and meets HIPAA requirements. Overview Ivy consists of two separate computing environments. Access to one environment does not automatically grant access to the others: Virtual Machines Domino Data Lab Coming soon - Secure HPC Requesting Access Access to Ivy resources is project-based, limited to PIs and their designees, and requires approval.
  • Secure Computing for Surgical Research

    SOMRC is working with Dr. Eric Schneider to create a secure computing environment for the research of the Healthcare Surgical Outcome team. Data from this project will contain HIPAA identifiers, as well as Medicare information, and requires more security and control of data ingress/egress than projects previously hosted on the Ivy platform. After successful implementation of this project, SOMRC will create a similar computing environment for DoD blast and traumatic brain injury data collected by Dr.
  • Image Processing Software on Ivy Linux VM

    Pre-approved packages The following software packages are pre-approved for image processing on an Ivy Linux VM KNIME KNIME is open source analytics platform for data mining and pipelining. KNIME’s Image Processing Plugin allows users to perform common image processing techniques such as registration, segmentation, and feature extraction. KNIME is compatible with over 120 image file types and can be used alongside ImageJ. ImageJ ImageJ is a Java-based image processing program developed at the NIH.

  • Secure Computing

    UVA School of Medicine Research Computing can assist medical researchers in both understanding what HIPAA compliance requires of their work, and how to implement technical solutions to achieve and verify such compliance. Review & Assessment From a compliance perspective, SOMRC offers three levels of review/assessment: Security Plan - Having a security plan in place is important to your success at UVA School of Medicine. If your lab or department doesn’t have a plan in place Research Computing Information Security will be happy to help you develop such a plan.
